The thing is, if we hadn't taken Cam last year, I don't think anyone would be thinking Bane AT ALL, and if we took him at 10, it would be a surprise.
Back to Okoro. With his terrible outside shooting, he really doesn't seem like a Jones pick, however, he does have the defense and the passing.
I think he'd be a good guy to have off the bench surrounded by shooters...since he is great at taking it to the rim.
He seems like a better version of Oubre, particularly taking it to the rim, passing and especially defense.
Of course Oubre is the better shooter though.
I do wonder if the Okoro stuff is a smokescreen though...hoping someone takes him or trades up to take him ahead of us because they think we want him.
But I don't know.
I was trying to think of someone Okoro might be like...takes it to the rim, good finisher, good passer, solid defender...bad shooter, short wingspan.
Made me think of Brandon Clarke...a thicker Brandon Clarke with maybe a better handle...and younger of course.
Though pulling up a comparison, besides 3pt%, FT%, and Assists, which are all simiilar, Clarke kills him across the board everywhere else...defense, shot blocking, TS% 70% to 59%
Triples him in BPM, quadruples him in DBPM.
Clarke with an 84 DRTG, Okoro with 101.3
Of course Clarke dropped due to age, and probably wingspan and weird shot.
Okoro 3 years younger coming out.
